Excuse my slew of thoughts...
Flagstaff sits just shy of 7,000 feet and also sits right at the base of Arizona's tallest mountain, Mt. Humphrey (12,633 feet). Nice place. It's known as a railroad town in that it is long and skinny down both sides of the mainline. There is a lot of rail traffic but they have now made it a quiet zone so you hear the trains but no horns at all hours of the day. I think they get something like 5-8 trains per hour. Lots of college kids as NAU is located there. Snowbowl is pretty close. There are a lot of Navajo indians in and around Flagstaff as the reservation is pretty close... FWIW. That area is also very volcanic so you have got a lot of cinder... everywhere. It's probably a lot warmer than you are used to but still one of the coldest places in Arizona year round. Lots of Ponderosa Pines and Junipers.
